About this program

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering(PhD)

The purpose of the PhD program is to produce graduates who can apply the fundamental principles of thermodynamics, mass transfer, and reaction kinetics to a variety of technical areas, such as drug discovery, industrial chemistry, biological systems, and environmental engineering. Because the program is built upon the application of chemistry, the central science, and is interdisciplinary by design, graduates will find careers in diverse areas such petrochemical, chemical processing, biotechnology, green technologies, pharmaceuticals, and private consulting. However, the program will also qualify graduates for academic appointments as professors, post-graduate researchers, and research scientists in university programs and laboratories.

Academic research that explores new concepts at a significant depth is key to the PhD degree, and the University of South Alabama has a collaborative research environment for students to complete their research with active research in ionic liquids, catalysis, porous materials, metal-organic frameworks, molecular simulations, biomedical applications, nanomaterials, and many others. Students can apply for admissions to the PhD upon receipt of their bachelor’s degree, and the time to complete the degree may vary with many students finishing in about 5 years.
